Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:


When does my child attend preschool? Next school year the District is offering a full-day program and a half-day program. The full-day program will be 5 days per week and the half-day program will be 4 half-days per week with up to 20 students. The 4-half-day program is an integrated preschool program (7 students with a disability and 7 students without a disability). Both preschool classrooms follow the same school calendar as Reading Elementary.


How old does my child need to be to attend? Students that will be four years old by the start of the school year will have priority. Preschoolers with a disability are eligible for the program when they turn 3 years of age. All children must be 3 years of age on or before September 30, 2021, to enter the lottery.


How much does Reading Preschool cost?  Tuition for the full-day program is $5000 ($500/month for 10 months) and the half-day program is $2500 ($250/month for 10 months). A deposit of $100 for full-day and $50 for half-day is required by March 1, 2021, and will be deducted from the annual amount.  Monthly payments are due on the last Friday of each month. 


Tuition rates are subject to change pending board approval.
